You can apply to a German university through their online admission portal or through Uni-Assist. Research the universities and programs that you are interested in and make sure to meet the admission requirements (which may vary from university to university).
4. Get health insurance
Health insurance is mandatory for all students in Germany. You can purchase health insurance from a German insurance provider or a provider in India that is recognized by German authorities.
5. Arrange accommodation
Arranging for your accommodation before arriving in Germany would be better than looking for it afterwards. You can book student housing or private accommodation online or through a travel agent.
6. Keep all these things handy
Don’t forget to keep all the necessary documents, including your passport, student visa, acceptance letter from a German university, and health insurance.
7. Arrive in Germany
Once you arrive in Germany, follow the immigration process. You may be asked to show your passport, student visa, and health insurance. After clearing immigration, collect your baggage and proceed to your accommodation.
Once you arrive in Germany, make it a point to attend orientation sessions offered by various German universities for international students. This will definitely help you get more familiar with the university and the city, and also to socialize with other students.
